Distribution and ecology of wild lettuces Lactuca serriola L. and Lactuca virosa L. in central Chile
Wild lettuces (Lactuca L.) provide valuable genetic resources for crop breeding, but are also significant invasive weeds. We explored the distributions, habitats, and ecological characteristics of populations of wild Lactuca species in central Chile. We documented two species – Lactuca serriola L.
